Watcher: Black Widow! Your turn.
Black Widow: I’m after that bomb. I break off from Cap and scour the mall myself, but there’s all this… debris everywhere (spends 1PP: d10 solo, d4 debris everywhere, d6 push; +1PP, 13 result/d4 effect).
Watcher: Needle in a haystack time. I’ll roll the doom pool against you (12 result/d4 effect). Widow finds the bomb, but doesn’t succeed in disposing of it (the doom pool reduces by d4). Cap’s turn?
Black Widow: Go ahead.
Captain America: I’ll try to aid Natasha with an asset using my covert specialty. Cap has intel on the kind of bomb Crossbones uses typically (1PP stunt: buddy d8, lead by example d8, d8 covert, d8 stunt; Watcher pays Cap a PP for a step up in the doom pool, 15 result/d8 effect).
Watcher: Let’s see what the doom pool has to say about this (7/d8). Cap’s asset really paid off. You get it and it’s stepped up to d10.
Captain America: Let’s call this asset d10 MUNITIONS INTEL. I’m done.
Watcher: Crossbones leaps out of the darkness and comes at you with a butterfly knife (solo d8, muscle bound d8, combat knife d6, combat master d10, d6 emotional stress; 16 result/d8 effect).
Captain America: Bring it! I swing around and let the shield take it (d6 solo, d8 sentinel of liberty, d12 durability, d10 combat master; 1PP for three result dice, result 12/d10 effect). He got me, but I turned away some of the assault.
Watcher: Good thing too. That was a vicious attack. He spins his knife on his fingers with bloodlust in his eyes. Time for the bomb scenario to play out on Black Widow. I roll the doom pool as time continues to waste away (result 5/d4 effect).
Black Widow: Probably dealing with some potential emotional stress (d10 solo, d4 debris everywhere; result 3/effect d4). Not good…
Watcher: Doom pool steps up +1. You take d4 emotional stress too. At least you got a PP. Go ahead Black Widow.
Black Widow: Time to put this munitions intel to good use (d10 solo, d8 russian superspy, d10 munitions intel; 1 opportunity, 12 result/d4 effect).
Watcher: Another little boost for the doom pool. It rolls against you (9/d8). Your reaction is stepped back and has no effect.
Black Widow: Yikes. Go Cap…
Captain America: I intend to. I let this jerk eat some fist for lunch (d6 solo, d8 sentinel of liberty, d8 strength, d10 combat; PP for a third result die, 19 result/d8 effect).
Watcher: Crossbones is not having a good day (d6 from doom pool: d8 solo, d8 muscle bound, d10 combat, d6 doom; result 9/effect d10). Crossbones just got thwacked. You send him crashing through a mall fountain… and when I say “through a fountain” I mean “it’s made of stone and you just put him through it”. He’s trying to shake the cobwebs loose. His turn. He pulls his crossbow and tries to aim through bloodied vision (add d8 from doom pool: d8 solo, d8 brutal merc, d6 crossbow, d10 combat, d6 physical stress, d8 doom; 12 result/d8 effect).
Captain America: My shield should easily stop this (solo d6, sentinel of liberty d8, d12 durability, d10 combat; 2 opportunities, 2 result/d12 effect). Oh no!
Watcher: Give yourself 1 PP for a d8 added to the doom pool. A crossbow bolt goes right through one of your knees. He caught you while you were blocking too high with your shield. He isn’t one of your deadliest enemies for nothing! About to roll the doom pool next… this is getting really tense.
it stands currently...
Doom Pool (High Stakes): 1d4, 2d6
Crossbones: d12 physical stress
Mercs: all out.
Black Widow: 1PP, 1XP, d10 munitions intel asset, d4 emotional stress
Cap: 1PP, 1XP, 1d6 emotional stress, 1d12 physical stress
